Congratulations and thanks are due to the people who put the submissions
together and who presented them. Our thanks are due to the members
of the panel who gave their time their experience and their attentive
listening to the day. Thanks also to Lorcan McLaughlin who ran
the public address system, Ken Rooney of the Fountain Partnership,
to the Advisory Group, particularly Barney Devine, Denis McCoy,
Brendan Murtagh and Donnie Sweeney. William Temple of the Board
of Directors gives constant advice and feedback. Allen Kennedy
provided a photographic record of the day in his usual unobtrusive
and professional manner. Gloria McGinley, who did the ISL interpreting
and Chuck Mikity were both crucial to the success of the day.
Tim O'Connor of the Forum for Peace and Reconciliation, Dublin
Castle, provided advice and relevant documents. The Minority Rights
Group International provided documents and information on minorities
for dissemination on the hearing day. We thank them all.
We are grateful to Liam Milligan and his colleagues at the Sensory Support Service who provided crucial advice and practical help. Our thanks to BBC Radio Foyle, Highland Radio, The Belfast Telegraph, The Londonderry Sentinel and the Derry Journal for covering the event. We would also like to thank the staff of the Guildhall, for their assistance at the hearing. Finally, thanks are due to our funders, Derry City Council, The Northern Ireland Voluntary Trust, The Inter Church Emergency Fund for Ireland, and The Community Relations Council, without whose financial assistance none of this would have been possible.
